This week I've come up with a film storyline. I'll let you in on it, since you've been kind enough to read this blog. Basically, it involves a volcano with an unpronounceable name erupting in let's say Iceland, spreading volcanic ash across Northern Europe, grounding all the planes. What follows is a true test of the human spirit. Starring Robert Pattison and Jennifer Love Hewitt. Obviously I'm joking about the film but it does seem like the volcanic ash story has taken over all the other news. Hopefully the planes not travelling hasn't affected you personally. I know that my mate Jackie/Yin (she has two names)was going to go on a romantic trip to Rome, not anymore. What I don't understand is why we haven't seen any of this ash. I would have thought, that if we looked up to the sky we would see a massive black cloud cloud loitering with menance. Or maybe we would be in continued darkness from morning to evening, but nothing.
I'd also be interested to know if anyone has taken advantage of this situation, maybe emailing work saying you are stranded, when in fact you're down your local. And finally on this subject, it must be a great time to try to sell your house if you live on a flight path. Prospective buyers will think you live in a quiet area, they'll get the fright of their lives when the aeroplane ban is lifted.
The other big news last week, was the historical TV political debate, with the leaders of the 2 main parties and Nick Clegg. I missed it as I was playing football, I scored to own goals but we still won, if you are interested. Despite not seeing the debate, I may as well have as I've seen so many debates about the debates. Apart from journalists, political analysts, I've heard the opinions of comedians, body language experts and fashion experts. Apparently Gordon Brown shouldn't have worn a pink tie, as pink is red with a bit of blue in it. People have also commented on the fact that despite getting 9m viewers it was still beaten in the ratings by the return of Britain's Got Talent. That's why for the next debate on Sky, I've suggested the leaders should do it with a dancing dog.
And Finally...Last week I mentioned how I put on two bets and missed out on cashing in by one place on both occasions. On Weds, I decided to do the lottery, what with it being a triple roll over. I didn't win the jackpot, hence the fact I'm writing this blog, but I did get....
2 numbers, aswell as being one number out on two other numbers. Bloody typical.
Til next week, stay safe!
